To the editor:

Probably all of us have concerns about rising medical costs and confusion with health insurance, and we wonder how we got to our present state. It is complex, but as reasonable people, we need to dig out the facts as best we can.

Steve Long did a lot for us, as he researched and traced the history of Skiff Medical Center, including the effects of government decisions or requirements through the years. I read each installment and found them both interesting and enlightening. we have been fortunate to have Skiff in our community. If you haven’t read them, I encourage you to contact the Newton Daily News for the entire series. It may even give you ideas for specific questions to ask those running for Congress. Are their goals you goals?
